It’s an old showbiz cliché, but truth be told it is a deep and meaningful statement regarding the importance of the arts on our culture. As we raise much needed funds to maintain the theatre operations of today we also look to the future and long term viability of our beloved theatre.

The generous theatre supporters who have chosen to remember Topeka Civic Theatre in their estate plans are a very special group.

They are visionary. And inspiring dedicated.

They look forward to the needs of future generations and acknowledge the impact and importance of live theatre in our community, effectively committing to build their legacy with an investment in the arts.


Much like the stage, life is unpredictable but worth the price of admission. With every story told, every song sung, the audience gains an insight into another world and a new perspective, a memory for the road. Through Topeka Civic Theatre’s Legacy Society, we can make sure that new generations will hear the songs, old and new, and catch a glimpse of different lives in different times.

community impact

Each day we experience the impact Topeka Civic Theatre makes on our audiences, volunteers, young students, and our community as a whole. It is important for us to make plans to assure the arts are alive for our kids, our grandkids, and so on. After all, an amazing amount of people have worked hard for over 80 years to grow Topeka Civic Theatre to the incredible arts organization that it is today, and we want to make sure it continues. The show must go on!
